The Arizona Educator Proficiency Assessments (AEPA) is the result of shared efforts between Pearson's Evaluation Systems, an advisory committee of college and university educators, and certified Arizona teachers currently active in the schools. Questions are carefully designed to reflect skills, competency, values, knowledge, and objectives central to the work of Arizona public school teachers and administrators.
Tests are objective and criterion referenced. They are intended to determine which candidates possess an acceptable level of essential academic knowledge, professional knowledge, and essential skills that have been identified for Arizona teachers or administrators. Examinees' test results are reviewed against time-honored standards. Examinees are not ranked in relation to one another. The Arizona State Board of Education determines passing AEPA scores. These determinations are based in large part upon the recommendations of professional and experienced Arizona teachers and teaching instructors.
The tests are designed to assess professional knowledge and subject-area knowledge. These tests are in addition to the Constitutions of the United States and Arizona test. Those intending to earn administrator certification are required to pass the appropriate teaching certification test for superintendent, principal, or supervisor. The Arizona Academic (K-12) Standards, the Arizona Professional Teaching Standards, and the Arizona Professional Administrative Standards are given consideration in the design of these tests. Each of the areas includes selection-response questions which are electronically scored. Three areas-professional knowledge, subject knowledge, and administrator-add performance prompts that must be answered with a written or oral response.
Candidates hoping to pass their AEPA tests on the first try will need to plan focused, serious study time. In order to help you succeed, we have posted numerous free practice test questions. Reviewing the questions will not only give a sense of what you know and what you need to know, but give examinees an idea of how the selection-response questions are phrased.
